Lafayette Leopards (2-9)


Tavani out as Lafayette football coach

(STATS) - Lafayette will not bring coach Frank Tavani back after 17 seasons at the helm, according to reports Tuesday.

Football Scoop first reported the coaching change and Lehighvalleylive.com said Tavani informed his players at a team meeting Tuesday evening. However, the Patriot League university didn't immediately make a formal announcement.

The 63-year-old Tavani went 84-107 and won four league titles, but Lafayette won only three games over the last two seasons. Including his time as an assistant coach beginning in 1987, he spent the last 30 seasons on the Leopards staff.
